Abstract

Herbert Croly is commonly viewed as a liberal, if not a "corporate liberal," and not as a republican democrat. This article argues that the liberal elements of Croly's theory are subordinate to his republican goal and that Croly is an example of how the American political psyche is a complex synthesis of liberal and republican ideas. The author focuses on Croly's democratic values, his democratic "standard," and his stages of political development, and concludes with an examination of Croly's relationship with the republican tradition and with Rousseau in particular.
